second amendment rights and the second amendment rights of our law-abiding law-ag citizens. we have seen the newtown parents here in washington bravely telling their stories. they deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of aurora deserve better than this body turning their backs on them. the families of more than 30 people who die every single day at the hands of gun violence deserve more from this body. my friends, it is simply time to act. today is the day for this body to show the american people that their voices matter. that when 90% of americans demand us to expand background checks, that we can deliver. we should be able to agree today that we no longer need military-style weapons and ammunition clips on our streets. and we should be able to agree today that it's time to crack down on the illegal handguns being trafficked in our streets into the hands of criminals. four years ago, i met the parents of naisha pryor yard. naisha was a beautiful 17-year-old honor student killed in the prime of her life by an illegal handgun when she was just spending t
states today. roughly half the people that buy them are current or former members of the military or law enforcement. they buy them for legitimate purposes-- primarily for target shooting and increasingly to go hunting. members of the united states senate and congress own those firearms. paul ryan, for example, owns one of those and goes hunting with them. >> ifill: that one was a forgone concliewrkz as were the magazine clips, but the background checks not so much. >> our concern with the universal background checks is we think the problem we see is you have to fix the nix system. the first thing you need to do is fix the nix system which is why our industry is funding an initiate toif work at the grass-roots level to work with the states falling down on the jobs and not getting the background checks-- getting the information into the background check system. the system is only as good as the information that's in it, and background checks that are incompleted and accurate don't help anybody. having more of those background checks that are incomplete also doesn't help anybody. >> ifill:
, a neighbor, who quickly alerted law enforcement. at 8:40 eastern, applause on the scene as we heard moments ago. and moments later, this tweet from the boston police department, "suspect in custody. officers sweeping the area. stand by for further info. "president obama will speak a minute or so from now. the suspect is taken alive, now in the hospital in serious condition. the exact meaning of that unclear. let's go to jessica yellin who is standing by at the white house. jessica? >> reporter: anderson, this is an opportunity for the president to come out here and cheer on boston. thank the police there, honor the victims, and remind the nation that america doesn't stop for terrorism. president obama watched all of this unfold and the capture go down live on television in the white house as the rest of the nation did. as soon as he learned that the capture was happening, he went across the coloinated, over to the oval office and sat there with staff where he got a call from fbi director muller who officially notified him that it was true, the suspect was captured alive. then the president
have. the mayor is here. the members of our congressional delegations, all of the law enforcement leadership, several people who want to present to you this morning and take your questions. couple points i want to mention at the outset. i told you yesterday that the fbi has taken charge of the investigation, special agent in charge rick deloriere will speak. it is important to clarify two and only two explosive devices were found yesterday. other parcels, all other parcels in the area of the blast have been examined but they are, there were unexploded bombs or devices found. over 150 people were injured yesterday in the blasts, some gravely. our thoughts go out to all of those injured and killed and to their families and friends. i personally want to thank the extraordinary first responders for their, just extraordinary work yesterday. every single one of them, those who were on site and those who got to the site promptly thereafter performed beautifully as have the area hospitals. i've been calling around to the heads of the hospitals personally to thank them as well. it's our ho
the wrong the senators have done and until we have changed our laws. i am asking every reasonable american to help me tell the truth that the cowardice these senators presented and i'm asking for activists to unsubscribing from the e-mail lists and stop giving them money. i'm asking citizens to go to their offices and say, you have disappointed me and there will be consequences. it goes on from there. tomorrow's "new york times." gabby giffords. now it's time for lawrence o'donnell reporting from boston. have a great night. >>> today the gun lobbyists at the nra got what they wanted on the floor of the united states senate and tonight lobbyists from the nra have made it harder for the fbi to find the murderer who planted the bombs here in boston. >> the investigation into monday's bombing in boston intensifies. >> there's a lot of information flying around right now. >> we've heard conflicting information. >> various media accounts right now as to whether or not someone is in custody. >> a suspect is about to be arre arrested. >> i have just been told that an arrest has been made. >> we ar
these photos of what remains of a pressure cooker which was used as the delivery device for the explosives. law enforcement sources tell nbc news the bombs were built to act like homemade ieds. sources tell nbc news the bombs included a battery pack and "the boston globe" reports investigators recovered a part of a circuit board at the scene. the bombs were packed with scha shrapnel. the bomb was not capable of creating a massive blast. instead, its main purpose was to maim and injure. photos obtained by whdh in boston showed the area where the bomb was left moments before and moments after the detonation. the fbi is looking at these photos and others like them for clues as to who placed the bombs and when. now there is precedent for devices like these. in 2004, the fbi sent out a memo on the use of homemade pressure cooker bombs. al qaeda's online magazine gave instructions for making them just last month and in the 2010 attempted attack on times square, one of the devices found included a pressure cooker and 125 firecrackers. meanwhile, the search of an apartment belonging to a foreign studen
provided by the commentators, pundits and law professors who made it seem acceptable in the minds of the public in the wake of 9/11. that is why the after math of an event like boston, we have a duty to fight the darkest impulses in ourselves, in our fellow country men and women, to make clear to our leader that is we desire security and justice and the application of the rule of law. that there is no reason that our remarkably capable law enforcement officials and courts can't handle apprehending, trying and convicting the perpetrators of this slaughter and it is why i was so angered and disappointed when i saw david weigel report that susan collins said this today. what do we do once we capture the individual? how is he treated, if he's an american, then the constitutional protection pertain. if he is a foreign national, he should be held by a military tribunal and not read his mir randa rights. yes, susan collins, a voice of reason and bipartisan reason. telling reporters that if the person apprehended has beens to be a foreign national -- what a disgrace and what an insult to
law enforcement. and they underestimated the resilience of boston. and william pollard would describe it as the arrogance of ignorance. they're going to be caught soon. >> james, underestimating law enforcement and the resources they can bring to this, is the most useful mistake that criminals like this make in these situations, isn't it? >> well, it's true. they underestimate the capability. look, you've got the a-team here. if you look at every great celtics team, red sox team, bruins team, rolled them together, all the players, that's the investigative team. they're going to win. they're going to -- they're going to solve the case. you can see it develop in 72 hours. that was a heartbreaking piece you just did at the elementary school. and i've seen all too many bombing victims over the years. and it's a vulgar crime. a mass murder by bombings and firearms are vulgar, vulgar crimes. >> james, before you go tonight, we're going to talk about this later in the show. but we discussed last night what the nra did, and its lobbying campaign years ago to make these investigations more dif
stymied investigators and caused a lot of fear in the law community. >>> we'll begin in texas with search and rescue teams. they are combing through the debris in an incident at the west fertilizer plant. and i did say search and rescue, as the plant continues to smolder this afternoon, authorities are not ready to give up on finding survivors trapped in the rubble from the blast. it could be felt 50 miles away. we don't know yet how many people are missing, but they do include several members of the area's all-volunteer fire department. scores of people were injured in the blast. there's a heavy police presence, of course, in neighborhoods damaged by the blast. only search and rescue teams are being allowed in. there's been one isolated report of looting and many, many reports of neighbors helping neighbor. this all started when the fire broke out in the fertilizer plant in the tiny north central texas town of west, population 2,600. last evening, right as people wrapped up dinner. some drove closer to the plant to watch, that's when it exploded. >> you okay? >> i can't hear. i can't hea
with armored soldiers or law enforcement officials with assault rifles. we've seen the blackhawks. we've learned the blackhawks are part of the massachusetts natural guard. they're used for transport. we've seen them in the last 15 or 20 minutes passing over. this is very active, and if this guy has been up as i have when i first started to pursue him at 11:00 last night, he's tired. he may be getting cornered in the final 30%. this is very dangerous. on top of that, we know from the controlled explosives that has happened in the last few hours that there are explosives out there. i just want to remind people. while it may look calmer in the scenes we're seeing today, the scene that i rolled up on here behind some 30 or 40 law enforcement officers, everything, fbi, swat, atf, boston police department, everything right into the blocks behind me about three or four streets, and it was aster phying a gun 5 as i've ever seen in iraq or afghanistan. this is a very violent individual, just like his brother. he is feeling perhaps more cornered and tired. it is imperative that they listen, th
on this investigation, we are joined by brandi hitt in boston. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. law enforcement officials tell abc news that the terror suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is awake being questioned by authorities about possible accomplices. with the throat injury, though he is having to write down these responses, one week after the terror attack. law enforcement sources tell abc news terror suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev is awake in a boston hospital. and being questioned about possible accomplices and unexploded bombs. the 19-year-old is responding in writing, due to a serious throat injury. authorities say may have ctlf. >> they had other bombs. they had other explosives. they were probably planning to do something else. >> reporter: this is the first moment an elite federal interrogation team has spoken to tsarnaev since friday's dramatic end to the manhunt. new video shows him hiding in a boat as stun grenades exploded leading to capture. tsarnaev's older brother, tamerlan was killed in a police shootout and investigators are looking into his trip to russia which has become a hotbed of i
from your sources? >> i do, chris. talking to federal law enforcement officials, i understand the fbi's emergency response team this is the team that goes to the crime scene, collects all of the evidence, referred to as the ert. they have cleared the crime scene. it doesn't mean it's open. you see the boston pd is still there. the fbi's emergency response team has collected evidence at the crime scene, finish line of the boston marathon and inventorying it, they will look at it and use it to help them prioritize interviews and how they go through, what order, video surveillance camera tapes to identify and link them to the evidence found in at the scene. we also understand from federal investigators that they have not found -- reports early on of ball bearings being used to -- as part of these devices to increase the injuries. federal investigators tell me they have not found ball bearings, but their current theory they are working on, these devices were placed in trash cans and when the trash cans exploded that would have made the shrapnel that caused all of these horrific injuries t
knit community. all right, poppy harlow, thank you. >>> the fbi is the lead law enforcement agency right now in this bombing investigation. that is in coordination with state and local police. susan candiotti on the very first steps of the investigation. good morning, susan. what are you hearing? >> hi, john. they certainly haven't stopped since all this started. they're working around the clock actively as you indicated earlier, a lot of things to pursue. they're talking to witnesses and some of those witnesses are even those who have been hospitalized after this event. now no one is being called a suspect at this time. we do understand that one of the people they're speaking with according to sources is someone described as a saudi national whose one of his legs was wounded. that person is under guard at the hospital now. again, there is a large police presence at the hospital. we're told not to read anything special into this. and we are also learning about that one injured person that they are not saying that he is involved. we do know that the injury, of course, was a result o
information, john, coming from the boston globe this morning. according to a law enforcement official the "boston globe" is saying that 30 people were transferred after the attack to hospitals under a code red. that basically means with life-threatening injuries. so that law enforcement official telling the newspaper that could mean that the number of fatalities could rise. we are in the very early stages of knowing how these people will do, even after they get out of initial surgery. some, we're told, will have to go through multiple surgeries after that. >> poppy harlow. our thanks to you. those numbers that you bring up are what are so startling to so many people. one doctor overnight i heard say it was just depressing what he was seeing. another word you could perhaps use, chris, i suppose is infuriating. >> i'm sure. but the bottom line is no matter how he was feeling it's what these medical professionals were doing. if you're seeing pictures of what people were dealing with when those bombs went off you'd be amazed the death toll is not so much higher right now. no question phen
. it seems likely, though not certain, according to law enforcement, that a timer was used. we'll get to all of that in a moment. i want to begin with the reality, for many families that they are dealing with right now. for some, it will be intense therapy, adjusting to a life with fewer limbs. we're seeing a lot of lower limb amputations. today, doctors spoke of being forced to finish the job of the bombs, amputating people's legs to save their lives. the latest at this hour, three people known dead. at least 174 injured, including 23 people who are critically injured. the stories of loss and pain, we keep learning new details. one runner's camera was rolling as she approached the finish line. take a look. as loud as that blast was, it was into silence that another witness felt the full impact of what she survived. >> i got home last night, at about 11:00, and started to break down because i had been holding it in all day, i had been trying to remain composed, but by the time i was trying to fall asleep it was all hitting me, this is really real and waking up this morning and realizing, it
this apparently was going. earlier on your broadcast this evening, i was chastised a bit in the law enforcement community and were progressing as we moved along, but you have to keep in mind, as their looking for these clues, any single one of those clues could lead them immediately to a suspect. a thumbprint on the bomb that they're recreating down in quantico, any tip, any certain surveillance shot or even a photograph that somebody who was at the scene may have taken of their loved ones as they were snapping a picture near the finish line and now notice there is a guy in the background perhaps putting a black bag somewhere. that could be just the one tip that would solve this case. they have extensive manpower on it. there is no way they're getting frustrated this early in the game, but i will tell you, they are in a real urgent hunt to find this person and solve this crime. >> certainly the first 24 or 48 hours, so crucial in that. thanks to drew. let's talk about what authorities can learn from this new evidence. i want to bring in the former fbi assistant director tom fuentes, and don bar
. the hospitals and law enforcement both reporting that there were ball bearings inside this bomb. not some of the other projectiles like nails that you might find in other improvised explosive devices, particularly like those you see in afghanistan. what can the kind of bomb used yesterday tell you about who may have been behind this? >> as a general matter, willie, the type of bomb, the explosives, was this gun powder? was it some higher quality explosive like petn, was it hydrogen peroxide? that will give a load about the type of organizations behind this. the fact there were ball bearings in this is it clearly tells you that whoever did this was intending to maim and kill. this wasn't an attempt to just, you know, do some damage and scare some people. this was someone or a group trying to kill people. you know, beyond that, i think it's really dangerous to say ball bearings suggest domestic or international. the fact is whether it's al qaeda or domestic terrorist groups or hezbollah, all of these groups have used different sorts of motus operenda. it will be a different lead for investi
and that it is a person who sent a lot of letters to law americas. but we don't know who that person is. we don't really have any other specific information just that mail service to the u.s. senate has been stopped and some senators are concerned. >> it is not just members concerned but a lot of staff, that's a big concern obviously for all of us. we are very anxious to get the details. >> senator wicker who was the recipient of this letter said this matter is part of an ongoing investigation by the united states capital police and fbi. i want to thank our law enforcement officials for their hard work and diligence in keeping those who work at the capitol complex safe. in ricin poison found at that time no one was injured but there was no letter levever fou so no rayses were ever made. the united states postal service says their primary concern is keeping employees safe, customers safe and keeping the u.s. mail safe. >> peter doocy live for us in maryland this morning. thank you. >>> other news to bring you noul. it is a some der day in london where we take a live look at the coffin of margaret thatch
law enforcement all appealing to the public, asking for any amateur video and photographic evidence that can aid in what now has become a massive investigation. >> we are in the process of securing and processing the most complex crime scene that we've dealt with in the history of our department. we are doing that under the direction of the fbi and in partnership with the atf. jenna: not insignificant that he says that the most complex investigation in their department's history. despite a variety of different reports that you've all heard over the last 24, nearly 24 hours, the commissioner is making it very clear that right now no one is in custody in connection with these attacks. >> we still do not know who did this or why, and people shouldn't skwrupl top conclusions before -- jump to conclusions before we have all the facts you about. make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. and we will find out who did this. we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. jon: president obama on the air just
you been hearing, susan? >> reporter: michael a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation is telling us that investigators now believe that one of the bombs appears to have been placed inside a metal pressure cooker that was hidden inside a backpack. so inside a metal pressure cooker, hidden inside a backpack. this, again, has to do with what at least one of the bombs that was found. you'll remember that we have been reporting that law enforcement authorities had issued a bulletin to other investigators to be on the lookout for someone who might have been carrying a black backpack in the area of the explosions right before they occurred. so this might go hand in hand with that. we also heard governor deval patrick of massachusetts announce not long ago that there were two bombs and two bombs only. he went on to say that another device that had been found or a suspicious package, rather, that had been found, was blown up as a precautionary measure. so he said they're working with two bombs. we don't have information at this time any or details about the
is in custody. >> megyn: bill hemmer, thank you, friend. see you soon. law enforcement now pouring over images from the scene and you heard bill how they're asking anyone who was there to send them pictures. what you're about to see a one example of what authorities are looking at. you will he see a man cross the finish line and kiss his children and then you'll hear the first explosion and 12 seconds or so later you will hear the second blast. listen here. >> great job!. [explosion] >> we now know that three people were killed and just under 200 people were injured in those moments. the authorities will also be looking at this video where moments after the explosion, look, you see two large pieces more than two, but those two we highlighted for you, metal flying, we've spot-shadowed them here and pieces of evidence that they'll use to determine who may be behind the terrible event. coming up later in the show we're going through the video with one of the world's foremost explosives experts who has worked on nearly every major terror investigation in recent memory, including the 1983 bombing
found two unexploded bombs. this morning a senior law enforcement official says there were no unexploded devices, just the two that went off. several officials say the bombs that went off included shrapnels to multiply the injuries, bebes and ball bearings. investigators are investigating video to see if they can see individuals placing the packages. there is a video from the back carrying two backpacks but it's too soon to know whether that had anything to do with the attack. authorities say there is no suspect in custody but they did talk last night to a 20-year-old saudi man here on a currently active student visa. he had burns and questioned for hours and it's his home that was searched in the boston suburb of revere. they carried away some materials for examination but one official said it's too certain to know one or the other about him, that he might have been an innocent bystander. >> let's get to michael lighter, nbc news terrorism expert. good morning to you. the key question everyone is waking up with is what is your gut? does this bear the hallmarks of some domestic terrorism
dead after a dramatic shootout with law enforcement early friday morning. his 19-year-old dzhokhar escaped on foot precipitating a shelter in place order for the entire boston area. but the much sought after armed and dangerous teen was found wounded and incoherent in a boat parked in the backyard of a suburban watertown home. discovered not by the hundreds of armed officers who had been searching for him for hours but by the home's owner, reportedly out for a smoke. with one assailant dead and the other in police custody, the people of watertown and the entire boston area expressed their enormous gratitude and sense of relief with spontaneous cheers and applause on friday night. the crisis is over. now the politics begin and this is where our responsibility in the media shifts. in the heat of the crisis, media take on the job of informational clearinghouse, keeping the public up to date, sharing critical information and get the information out right and fast. granted, those are goals that can contradict at times. now we must step back from the incessant drumbeat of breaking news t
days in the country's recent history. in 1993, a 51-day standoff between federal law enforcement and branch davidian leader david koresh ended with 80 dead including 25 children when koresh refused to surrender peacefully. on the same day two years later, timothy mcveigh bombed the alfred murrah federal building in oklahoma city killing 168 including 19 children in the building's day care center. >> that attack was specifically designed as payback for the government's role in waco two years earlier. >> reporter: for those who hate america and know something of its history, monday had particular meaning. in massachusetts monday was a state holiday. patriots day, commemorating the first shots fired in the american revolution. during the battles of lexington and concord fought near boston in 1775. >> the real patriots day is april 19th. that is the date that counts for people on the extreme right in the united states. as it happens, massachusetts celebrates patriots' day on the third monday of every -- of the month. >> reporter: but for every conspiracy theory about domestic extremi
continue to mobilize and deploy all appropriate law enforcement resources to protect our citizens and investigate and to respond to this attack. obviously, our first thoughts this morning are with the victims, their families, and the city of boston. we know that two explosions gravely wounded dozens of americans and took the lives of others including, an 8-year-old boy. this was a heinous and cowardly act and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror. what we don't yet know, however, is who carried out this attack or why. whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or was the act of a malevolent individual. that's what we don't yet know. and clearly we're at the beginning of our investigation. it will take time to follow every lead and determine what happened. but we will find out. we will find whoever harmed our citizens and we will bring them to justice point we also know this. the american people refuse to
from a boston law enforcement source who says in addition to the pressure cooker, they say it's undeniable, they have a twisted top of a pressure cooker, about 6 liter capacity. they believe it's two identical devices or two similar devices, but i'm also told a partial circuit board recovered in the same area that also has been sent to quantico. and now this all goes off, we go through this after airplane crashes, they try to take every piece they can get, assemble it back together, try to recreate the bomb. they're hoping to find fingerprints, any kind of dna, something from the backpack. and if you can't get personal identification items like that, look for serial numbers, brand names, at least try to figure out where was the pressure cooker, where might the bag have been bought. >> are you getting a sense from your sources about where this investigation? they are still appealing for help in terms of getting more pictures out there. giving out a fair amount of information which is sometimes kind of rare. >> you can tell from the special agent in charge at the news conference
as new york city's mayor during the 2001 world trade center terrorist attacks, a partner at the law firm. good to have you with us. >> best to be with you. lou: first, let's start with the fact that there ruled out the young man who apparently was the person of interest, not a suspect saying that he had nothing to do with it. what does that suggest to you about where they are? >> it is a setback. in the murder investigation, terrorism investigation, the logger it takes to solve the less of a chance you have to solve it. it's just a progression, a formula that is there. so they spend focusing on one person. seems to me they're now back at ground zero try to figure out how to put this all together. so when i heard them ask earlier today for everybody to cooperate photographs, i was hoping that that was a ploy and they already had a photograph from their own surveillance. apparently it out. lou: in nearly every city, obviously more familiar with new york city and boston, closed-circuit television almost everywhere. these cameras. how much surveillance to you expect there is? i have been, fr
in a dark-colored bag or backpack. federal law enforcement sources tell cnn the devices were inside pressure cookers and they believe bbs and nails were part of the explosives. important to know that so far nobody has claimed responsibility. the toll of injured up to 183, three more have died, including 8-year-old martin richard, and krystle campbell. >>> president obama will travel to boston on thursday. now we go to chris cuomo live for us in boston. it seems here we are 24 hours more or later and nobody seems to have a real clue who has done this or why. >> reporter: that shouldn't be surprising, piers, these investigations take a very long time to develop, especially starting with being multifactorial, no group claiming responsibility. so much ground to canvas, this is going to be a difficult investigation. i think it's good news that the authorities said in their presser that they're in no rush. very often as we both know, haste makes waste when it comes to an investigation. this is about getting it right. >> that is true. i imagine there'll be some people in boston who will be concerne
analyzed by authorities. it was sent out to law enforcement agency so this everyone can compare notes. there's this picture showing a bag next to the mailbox right where the first bomb went offer. question tonight, was it one of the bombs? the fbi is analyzing it along with fragments of the pressure cooker. there is that and this, breaking news out of washington wac letter to a u.s. senator testing positive both in the field and now in the lab for the deadly poison ricin. dana bash is working her source on that and will join us. we have learned more about those who lost their lives and the wounded, and the loers who rose up to help others. we don't know about the third fatality, she was a chinese national, a graduate student at boston university not for farr from here, her name is being witt held at the request of her family and krisle camp eltame yesterday to watch her friend cross the finish line. she worked 16 hour days but was never too tired to share her love and a smile. she was just 29 years old. martin richard was 8 years old. his mother and sister -- the sign says no more hur
a new same-sex marriage law in the country. new zealand is the first nation in the asian pacific region to support a marriage equality law and it is the 13th country in the world to do so. lawmakers in uruguay approved the marriage law last week that its president is expected to sign. >>> on capitol hill, a plan to expand background checks for gun buyers is in jeopardy. the senate plans to vote today on the bipartisan proposal but more republicans are saying they oppose it. at this point it seems headed for defeat unless supporters can turn votes around in these closing hours. the senate is also set to vote on other amendments on a gun control bill. >>> coming up, a little sports, barry zito putting his 14 inning scoreless streak on the line last night. we'll tell you how he did. >> plus, a heartfelt tribute at yankee stadium for the boston bombing victims. >> cool. >> but first, as we count down to opening day, here's a live look at the new bay bridge. we'll be right back. you kids should count yourselves lucky. we didn't have u-verse back in my day. you couldn't just... guys... there
for law enforcement to put it together. >> the boston police department was one of the early departments to be trained at the oklahoma city, the terrorism institute for in oklahoma city. i think the boston pd is extr e extremely well led and very sophisticated. the fbi has a field office in boston. you couldn't have a better law enforcement investigative community there. obviously, the good thing and i think mr. van zandt focused on it, is the fact that you had an opportunity hopefully to observe a lot of things a as a result of cameras. that comment about the bomb dogs coming in apparently before the placement of these devices. if each of them are 20 pounds apiece, that's a pretty burly person could handle that. may have been two people like tim mcveigh and one of his associates in oak city. they need a lucky break. state trooper who saw that broken license plate, but we've got to get to the bottom of it. we will and whoever's responsible will be tried and convicted and i think mercifully, hopefully, if they are responsible for this horrific act, will be executed d as we did tim mcveig
